All of Us

For Toke, Monica & Jan

coming in by the side road
a winding path
to the stream
took us down where
we sat for a while
feet bathing in cool water

attending the natural theatre
we played so many quavers and characters in
the movement of rill and brook,
ceaselessly purposeful, over
stone, sand and moss
this going around, under, through
us, as we gathered, and have gathered for millennia

we are the ancient flow
from first mothers first fathers first family
the tribe are near
coming out of the ages we
hear their call and chatter,
in time we come to know
this all of us, our story
